At Stephen Starr’s Veronika, the Lowest-Cost Entrees Stun as Much as the Opulent Space

Stephen Starr’s borscht-slinging Veronika is an objectively opulent restaurant. In the grand dining room, located on the second floor of the Fotografiska museum on Park Avenue South, one will encounter multi-tiered brass chandeliers, leather chairs, 20-foot ceilings, cushy blue banquettes, indulgent French and Eastern European fare from chef Robert Aikens, and good osetra caviar. Spending a lot of money here is not difficult.

But for such a posh venue, patrons can also still get in and out for a fair price, all while sampling some of Veronika’s marquee dishes, including the squirty comfort classic that is chicken Kiev. In fact, there’s such a wide range of prices that those who order frugally can save more than $100 than those who don’t. That’s prime territory for the second edition of Value Option.

Restaurant Verōnika at Fotografiska Museum opens from Stephen Starr

Verōnika, a new restaurant at the recently-opened, Fotografiska Museum, premieres to the public today in Flatiron. The concept comes from celebrity restaurateur Stephen Starr who runs New York heavy-hitters such as Le Coucou, Pastis, La Mercerie and Buddakan (among others).

The menu will be led by Executive Chef Robert Aikens, who, prior to this, worked for Starr and his Philadelphia spot, The Dandelion, as well as the Rainbow Room.
